Speaker’s Biography
Dr. Walter Dorn is Professor of Defence Studies at the Royal Military College of Canada (RMC) and the Canadian Forces College (CFC). At the CFC, he serves as Chair of the Master of Defence Studies (MDS) programme and the Deputy Director for Graduate Studies. He previously was Chair of the Department of Security and International Affairs, and Deputy Director for Outreach and Community Development. He was also Chair (2008–2013) of Canadian Pugwash, an organization of physical, life and social scientists seeking to reduce the threats to global security.

At the Canadian Forces College he teaches officers of rank Major to Brigadier-General from Canada and over 20 other countries in the areas of arms control, Canadian foreign/defence policy, peace operations and international security.

He has written several books, including Keeping Watch: Monitoring, Technology, and Innovation in UN Peace Operations, and most recently edited the volume, Air Power in UN Operations: Wings for Peace. He is hoping to “someday soon” complete a book on a broader theme, possibly titled “The Emerging Global Watch: UN Monitoring for International Peace and Human Security.” It will analyse the expansion of the monitoring of conflicts, ceasefires, elections, human rights, sanctions, enforcement and global security generally.
